Hindus who voted against BJP in state elections, voted en masse for @narendramodi after #Balakot happened because they saw how PM Modi took a formidable stand on national security.

This does not bother Indian Muslims who still vote en masse against Modi-led BJP

Tells a lot
Modi is far from a perfect leader. But he did avenge #Pulwama terror attack. What Modi did in #Balakot was unprecedented. Even his fiercest opponent will credit PM Modi here. India is safe under Modi was a huge factor. But for many Indian Muslims, none of this matters.
Is there a single Muslim majority constituency that elected a Hindu MP?

Of the total 543 Lok Sabha constituencies, 29 have Muslim population in excess of 40%

27 Muslim MPs elected to Parliament

This is how religious polarisation looks like

RADAR-->Radio Detection And Ranging
Brief introduction into technology

Discovery of RADAR can't be attributed to one person or one nation, rather an accumulation of many developmental iterations & improvements in which contributions of Physicists & Engineers is a must.

1865- Scottish Physicist James Clerk Maxwell (Theory of Electromagnetic <EM> waves)
1886- German Physicist Heinrich Rudolf Hertz (Demonstrated Maxwell's Theory)
1897-Italian Inventor Guglielmo Marconi (Pioneered first long distance EM/Radio transmission)

Parallely Indian Bio-Physicist Jagadish Chandra Bose pioneered the investigation of radio and microwave optics.

1900-Serbian-American Nicola Tesla discovered that the reflection of EM waves could be used for detecting moving metallic objects (RADAR Principle)

1n Wednesday morning surprise: here’s a topographic time series of #Balakot. What does it show you? Massive construction activity & a huge dust cloud indicating construction after the date of the strikes (idea courtesy @beepdelete & @Obs_IL images @CopernicusEU @sentinel_hub )
2n Now match this with the image below of the 3 strike points. And see how each one of them develop in the time series. Especially contrast aim point 3 and the main madrasah building
3n now again watch a B&W image from a different source confirming the same pattern. You can draw one of two conclusions. Either the bomb blast effects lasted a whole week, OR that there was massive construction activity at the Madrasah post strike to cover up. #balakotairstrikes

Sam Pitroda. Lives in the capitalist US, insults the Indian middle class and wants Indian middle class to foot the bill for socialist schemes.
Is a Telecom engineer, suddenly an expert in economics, taxation and politics. #Thread
Sam Pitroda brought the 1960s technology to India in 1980s.
Gandhis hog the credit for bringing Sam and STD/PCO technology to India.
Nobody asks them, what took them so long? Why two decades behind??
From Sam Pitroda, Dr H l Trivedi to Raghuram Rajan....it’s Congress’ rich tradition to invite overseas Indians to run things in India. It gives them fake elite labels and Congress ensures that domestic talent is shown as second grade always anyway.

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

Huge win for #India's scientists and technologists at DRDO. Successful anti-satellite (ASAT) missile system test. A low earth orbit satellite is targeted and destroyed. After #US, #Russia and #China, India fourth country to acquire this space capability. #MissionShakti
A quantum leap forward into the 21st century. Space is the future and #India is there. #MissionShakti is no less tectonic than #OperationShakti -- proud to be Indian.
Those asking whether #MissionShakti merited address to the nation by PM @narendramodi : Elections come and go, national achievements are forever. This is a big day for #India , a very big day.

Here comes more info by @manupubby on the #MilitaryIndustrialComplex arising out of #Balakot

Swedish AWACS and South African Denel H4 missiles used by Pakistan.
2/2
In the aftermath of #AirStrikes (30 days) the narrative should have been discussions on #Nuclear or #Peace

However, the narrative is a mass of names of weapons used by India and Pakistan and names of defence companies.

🇮🇳१७वें आम चुनाव के मोड़ पर खड़ा है,
मैं इतिहास की कुछ अपरिचित घटनाओं से देशवासियों को अवगत करा कर अपना धर्म ऋण चुकना चाहती हूँ।
बुधवार को इस शृंखला का श्रीगणेश इस आशा के साथ कर रही हूँ की आप अपना बहुमूल्य मत देशद्रोहियों को ना देकर अपना धर्म ऋण चुकाएँगे🙏🏻
#ModiForAkhandBharat
जिस प्रकार की माँगों के अाधार पर 🇮🇳का विभाजन हुआ, वही माँगें आज कश्मीर में फ़न फैलाए खड़ी हैं
जो तब भारतवासी था, वो आज एक भयानक रोग का आकार लिए हमारा पड़ोसी है
जिसके पक्षकार अपने गुप्त उद्देश्य को पूरा करने के लिए यहीं बस गए!
आप #अखंड_भारत देखना चाहते हैं या #TukdeTukdeGang ?
Unfortunately, the disgraceful finale to the heroic freedom struggle of one thousand years yielded the MuslimLeague, a legal right over the important parts of India, Pakistan became the ugly truth.

1/n As Wg Commander Abhinandan made the comeback, lots of things transpired including sprouting of peaceniks supporting vile ideas of giving credit to @ImranKhanPTI & asking India to de-escalate. Now here is my answer as I bat for #FinalStrike cc @Sanjay_Dixit @KanchanGupta
2/n I’m sure that there shouldn’t be any debate on the fact if Pulwama Suicide Bombing that made us lose 44 @crpfindia jawans wasn’t conspired by JeM as it was just in few minutes that the video was released by the responsible.
3/n In a video that surfaced online following the attack, Dar – seen dressed in tactical gear, holding rifles while seated in front of a JeM banner – said that he had prepared and waited for this moment (the Pulwama attack) for a year.

Almost everyone has given his/her take. Even though late, let me try to distill my thoughts on what has happened in #Balakot and thereafter. Let me begin by saying that today's actions on the LoC by PAF doesn't restore deterrence for Pakistan. 1/n
What happened in #Balakot and what happened at LoC today are qualitatively very different. The former was an airstrike on a terror camp inside KPK. The latter was an action right across LoC resulting in no damage. Luckily for Gen Bajwa, the Mig21 fell on Pakistani side, 2/n
and the PAF plane that went down also fell on Pakistani side. Now Gen Bajwa has an IAF pilot to parade around. This repairs his domestic image that had been jolted by the IAF airstrikes. On the other hand, the optics are not good for Modi. 3/n

Ok folks, carrying on from this thread of yesterday morning, in light of the events of this day. My thoughts are still a bit unstructured, so pl bear with me.
2
First and foremost, the point raised in this tweet from nearly four years ago has now been answered. Whether it develops into a war, or a 'near war' is to be seen now
3
I guess that the Brown Pants have taken a call to retaliate, assuming that the aftermath of an overt retaliation will be easier to manage than the yahoos within their own country

Also confirmed from sources on Indian side - this was #Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The first Airstrike by US against "terrorists" in Afghanistan after 9/11 began on 7 Oct 2001. Nearly 2 decades later, US is now talking to "Taliban" for a "deal". This is how effective airstrikes are against "terrorists". 1/n
WRT India's airstrike on "terrorist camps" in Pakistan, how degrading would that be to the terror networks in reality? Very little. You can't destroy much that cannot be replaced quickly. Would that work as a deterrent? No. 2/n
India's airstrike against terrorist camps in Pakistan is more for optics and electoral posturing by Modi-Doval & company. Like the last "surgical Strike" could not prevent more terror attacks on India, neither would this. 3/n

Pakistan has been at the highest level of alert after Pulwama. Was India probing the reaction time and air defence effectiveness?
Pakistan has confirmed an explosion/strike by IAF in Balakot
Eyes in the skies, just in case Pakistan reacts

Unclear what “violated” means precisely here—but this also suggests multiple aircraft.
Follow-up tweet clarifies things a bit. We can litigate details later, but big picture right now per ISPR is IAF fighters crossed LoC in the early morning—before sunrise—and released some payload that Pakistan is saying hit nothing important in particular.
Biggest question I have is what “near” Balakot means and what payload specifically. Balakot is not in Azad Kashmir—it’s in KP.

They will even drag surgical strikes & URI movie
